  • Hi Matt - I heard you speak with a small business emphasis at a Time Warner Business Class seminar but my real interests in social media are in the non-profit field. I think we can apply some of your suggestions.

    4. 4. This is also me:
    5. 5. Social media presence <ul><li>I show you this because all the things I’m going to talk about are things for your brand. </li></ul><ul><li>When I say “Your”, there’s a question about personal versus professional </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook profile versus Facebook page. Should I get a Twitter feed? </li></ul>
    6. 6. Social media presence
    7. 7. Social media presence
    8. 8. Personal vs Professional <ul><li>My opinion, use these tools personally </li></ul><ul><li>It’s a little different here, so playing with them a little helps </li></ul><ul><li>If you have the slimmest of ideas why someone might use a tool like Twitter, then you’ll be better positioned to use it for your non-profit </li></ul>
    9. 9. What is a social network? <ul><li>A social network is a community of people that are tied together by an outcome </li></ul><ul><li>For an individual, the value of a social network is in their community </li></ul><ul><li>For a non-profit, the value is in harnessing the community </li></ul><ul><li>Here’s a sampling of some social networks </li></ul>
    10. 10. Social Networks
    11. 11. What is a social network? <ul><li>Were you impressed by all the logos? </li></ul><ul><li>Obviously logos are only part of the story </li></ul><ul><li>Before we dive deeper into these logos, we should think about what’s different here. </li></ul>
    12. 12. TRADITIONAL MEDIA DIGITAL MEDIA One way, brand speaking Two way / a conversation Focused on the brand Focused on the consumer Brand in control Consumer in control Repeating the message Adapting the message Entertaining Involving Brand created content User created content / Co-creation Space defined by Media Owner Space defined by Consumer
    13. 13.

    14. 14. Non-profits <ul><li>Most (though not all) non-profits have two distinct targets </li></ul><ul><li>People who use services </li></ul><ul><li>People who give – donors </li></ul><ul><li>Traditionally, marketers have used the stories from the first group to convince the second group to give </li></ul><ul><li>Social media can help the first people tell their stories </li></ul>
    15. 15. Social networking for non-profits
    16. 17. #1 Facebook <ul><li>Facebook is one of the best known social networks. I’ve stopped adding #’s to this presentation because every time I do it, they’ve doubled in size. </li></ul>
    17. 18. Facebook Page or Cause <ul><li>Facebook offers two tools for non-profits. The Cause, and the Facebook page. Pages are a free presence on Facebook for people to engage with a brand. </li></ul><ul><li>Here are some examples of pages: </li></ul>
    18. 19. Facebook <ul><li>Pages </li></ul>
    19. 20. Facebook <ul><li>The new programming lets you interact in an interesting way with fans </li></ul><ul><li>But first, consider who you want here. Strategically, Facebook can be the tool to let the people you help tell the story </li></ul>
    20. 22. Facebook <ul><li>This is a call to action. </li></ul><ul><li>Something that is missing in many non-profit social media examples because unless you put the page up with a goal, you don’t know how to ask people to do what you want them to do. </li></ul><ul><li>So get a goal. Create the Facebook page to let end users tell their stories. </li></ul>
    21. 23. Causes <ul><li>You can still add the Causes application to your Page. </li></ul><ul><li>Go here: (and add it) </li></ul><ul><li>One word of caution: adding a cause to a Facebook page might be enough for some people. </li></ul><ul><li>That said, 27 million people have added a cause, so it does create awareness. </li></ul>
    22. 24. Recap <ul><li>Who do you want to come to your Facebook? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you want them to do when they get there? </li></ul><ul><li>Figure that out, then tell people via e-mail, website and even on location (what we call in-store) </li></ul><ul><li>In one year, how will you measure success? </li></ul>
    23. 26. Twitter <ul><li>Twitter is a micro-blogging platform that lets people update their networks on the minutia of life. In 140 characters or less </li></ul><ul><li>Twitter is an excellent way to interact with both of your target markets. </li></ul>
    24. 27. Twitter <ul><li>If your cause impact’s people’s lives, then it can easily be part of their twitter life. </li></ul><ul><li>Before jumping in and getting a Twitter feed, take a listen at It gives you real-time updates of what people are saying about your non-profit. </li></ul>
    25. 28. Twitter <ul><li>Use Twitter to update both donors and people who use the services </li></ul><ul><li>But also, Twitter can help search a keyword and promote a Facebook page. </li></ul><ul><li>A non-profit advocating for the end of violence against women could register </li></ul>
    26. 29. Twitter apps <ul><li>There’s a Twitter app for: </li></ul><ul><li>Polls </li></ul><ul><li>Events </li></ul><ul><li>Images and videos </li></ul>
    27. 30. Polls
    28. 31.
    29. 32. Scamp
    30. 33. To recap <ul><li>There are two ways to think of Twitter: </li></ul><ul><li>A way to pull people in. If you search for your brand on Twitter, and don’t see it, you can ignore it. </li></ul><ul><li>A way to get your keywords. </li></ul>
    31. 34. Gottawannaneeda <ul><li>We have a client called Bojangles’ (they are for profit) </li></ul><ul><li>Instead of registering we registered </li></ul><ul><li>Because the tag line is Gottawannaneedagettahava Bojangles. </li></ul><ul><li>So it makes people think about what we’re all about instead of just who we are. </li></ul>
    32. 35. Delicious
    33. 36. Delicious <ul><li>Social bookmarking is the solution to never having to e-mail a link home. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s also a way to prove smarts. I have this on the bottom of my e-mail signature. </li></ul>
    34. 37. Delicious
    35. 38. Delicious <ul><li>But consider how this can work for a client. This can be the dynamically updated what’s new section of a website. </li></ul>
    36. 43. How it’s done <ul><li>A somewhat techno-phobic Pete from EMA has a Google alert for Epsom Salt. Google alerts are free, and send him an e-mail (alert) when Epsom Salt is mentioned. </li></ul><ul><li>He saves the alert to his Epsom Salt Delicious page and it’s automatically updated on the Epsom Salt What’s New page. </li></ul>
